Based on the Sopwith Pup, the Sopwith triplane was a British single seat fighter from WWI. It was the first military triplane to see operational service and joined the Royal Naval Air Service squadrons early in 1917 and was immediately successful. However, it was built in comparatively small numbers and withdrawn from active service with the advent of the Sopwith Camel later in 1917. Surviving Triplanes continued to serve as operational trainers until the end of the war.
